11/04/2011, 3D displays that require you not to wear a pair of glasses? Those have been around for some time already, but the image quality that you get isn’t exactly top notch compared to those systems that require you to shed a little bit of your pride so that you can put on a pair of glasses and let superior graphics (and perhaps storytelling) blow you away. Since I am a […]
10/25/2011, NICT and JVC Kenwood have pitted their brains together to roll out the 200″ auto-stereoscopic Full HD 3D display that is touted to show video from 57 – yes, count ‘em, 57 different angles! Basically, this means different people are able to walk right around the screen and actually see around corners or even better – behind objects.
10/19/2011, Sony’s upcoming official 3D display for the PlayStation, was unveiled at this year’s E3 in June and then later revealed to have a November 2nd release date for Japan. If you were wondering what about the US or the rest of the world? Well, Sony has just announced that its PlayStation 3D display will be available on November 13th 2011, which should be in time for the holiday shopping season.
10/13/2011, Stereoscopic 3D is definitely the way forward, but in the mean time, the adoption rate for 3D TVs as well as the Nintendo 3DS and 3D-capable smartphones aren’t too encouraging since most people see it not as a necessity but more of a novelty instead. IEE, Inc. might want to turn that perception around as they have integrated 3M’s revolutionary 3D film that does not need any 3D glasses to […]
07/22/2011, While it seems that in the past, Apple has not really displayed any indication that they might be making the move to 3D displays, following in the footsteps of other devices such as the HTC EVO 3D and the LG Optimus 3D, it appears that a recent patent filing revealed that Apple’s designs for a multilayer display will be able to display 3D images without the need for special glasses.
07/12/2011, LG of South Korea has just announced yet another 3D glasses-free monitor, known as the DX2000. This will be a 20″ wonder, making you feel as though your Nintendo 3DS has just been blown up manifold times. There really isn’t any impetus at this moment to purchase a 3D glasses-free monitor simply because the number of software that supports stereoscopic 3D on the computer is clearly lacking in numbers. Still […]
02/10/2011, Fans of 3D displays will be overjoyed to hear that Acer has introduced its GH245HQ display that offers full support for NVIDIA’s HDMI 3D solution. What this means is that users will be able to enjoy 3D content via active shutter glasses from devices directly via its DVI-DL (dual-link) input. The display was announced in the UK for about GBP420 ($675) and is a 24-inch display that supports full HD […]
02/10/2011, NiCT (National Institute of Information and Communications Technology) in Japan announced late last month the presence of the largest glasses-free 3D display in the world at a whopping 200 inches, which lets you check out natural looking 3D images without the need to wear one of those dorky pair of glasses. Could this be a move in the right direction according to AU Optronic’s prediction? Only time will tell, but […]
11/03/2010, With more news surrounding a glasses-free 3D display existence, AUO is promising that its panel, which the company is showcasing at the FPD International 2010 will be the first 3D panel that will not have a deadzone; prior 3D technologies required users to be around the center of the screen to view the images or videos. The panels will be shown off in a 15.6-inch 1080p HD notebook and a […]
09/24/2010, Hyundai IT seems that it wants to get in on the 3D game too as the South Korean company has introduced its 24-inch 3D stereoscopic LCD monitor, the W243S. The monitor comes bundled with software that will allow you to convert standard 2D video content into a 3D version. The display offers a 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution display, along with HDMI 1.3, DVI, and D-sub video outputs. It’ll set […]
09/09/2010, Toshiba has demonstrated a naked-eye 3D display that uses integral imaging, allowing 3D images to be seen from 9 distinct viewing angles without the need for 3D glasses. Integral imaging produces several rays of light projected at different angles, allowing users to see the 3D images without the need for 3D glasses and will apparently cause very little eye fatigue. Toshiba expects the new display to be used for advertising […]
07/06/2010, The Carnegie Mellon University is a true blue breeding ground for great ideas, and this time round we have this project that transforms a trio of water walls into a 3D display screen. The whole system will rely on three lines of needle thin droplets to release a row of water, which in turn symbolizes one line of pixels. All three rows are perfectly timed in order for neither to […]
06/18/2010, After watching James Cameron’s Avatar, are you planning to shoot all your future home videos in 3D? The folks over at Hammacher Schlemmer have started selling a 3D camcorder that is capable of recording 3D video at 640 x 480 pixel resolutions. While that’s a nice feat, the interesting part is that users will be able to even see the resulting 3D content directly on the device’s screen, without having […]
06/12/2010, Official details on the upcoming 3D-capable Nintendo 3DS haven’t been unveiled just yet, but word is that the portable console will sport two different screen designs, a tilt sensor, and will be quite powerful. From the latest leak, it seems that the 3DS could offer users a larger 3D display on the top half of this clamshell console, while the bottom screen will sport similar specifications of the original DS’ […]
